Toronto-based Partners Film has just signed directing duo The Sanchez Brothers.
The Sanchez Brothers, actual siblings Carlos and Jason Sanchez, hail from Montreal and began their careers in the world of still photography. Their large-scale photographic prints, which are cinematic in scope and compelling in content, were quickly likened to film productions making their transition to filmmakers a logical progression.
In the one year they’ve been directing, The Sanchez Brothers have made music videos for The Stills, “I’m With You”, and The World Provider, “I Got it All Wrong”, and commercial film productions for Scotia Bank, TV5 and Familiprix.
“Coming from a photography background, The Sanchez Brothers’ film work possesses a rich cinematic feel,” says Aerin Barnes, Executive Producer, Partners Film. “We are excited to be able to bring their unique directorial talent to our roster.”
Although The Sanchez Brothers are represented in Quebec by Montreal-based Quatre Zéro Un, their joining Partners Film makes it the first time they are available to the rest of Canada.
